Warbler Wave by April Pulley Sayre and Jeff Sayre. 2018. Photography. Published by Beach Lane Books.
Brief summary: Warblers migrate back up north in the spring stopping along the way to eat and continue the journey each night. Readers will learn what type of food they eat, other animals in their habitat, characteristics of various types of warblers, and other facts about these precious migratory birds.
Comments: This husband and wife team created another beautiful nature book. April Pulley Sayre books are the examples I use when teaching about the various mediums used to illustrate picture books. I can just imagine how quiet and still one would have to be to get these top-notch photos that spread across each oversized page. Lyrical prose.
There is a complete write-up in the back of the book about these birds and their amazing migration. I had no idea that there are fifty different species of these songbirds. The author and her husband set aside the first two weeks of May to enjoy the warbler migration. Live near Toledo, Ohio? Don’t miss The Biggest Week in American Birding, a festival celebrating the warblers’ migration.

Keep in mind that young readers may be reading about the picture book I reviewed, so I will not approve your comment if there is inappropriate language. Be kind; be polite. No spam or ads, please. Because I am working as a library media specialist, it may take me a day to get back to my blog.
If you see that I made a typo or grammatical error, I’m totally cool with you politely letting me know. No need to be snarky. I am fully aware that I have an attention span of a hummingbird and miss things when I proofread. I also realize that I am not a professional writer, but I am willing to learn and improve).
